Weekly Commenting Prompt

Question of the Week:  What is your favorite, healthy snack to serve your children?

My daughter is 12 years old and is such a picky eater!  These days, I’m happy when she eats at all!  When she does decide to eat, my favourite healthy snack to serve my daughter would have to be fresh fruits and vegetables, and sometimes even cheese!!

  • grapes (seedless)
  • cucumber
  • cubed cheese
  • baby carrots
  • broccoli
  • bananas
  • apples
  • and, really anything else that she’ll accept!

I’m quite comfortable also including whole wheat crackers, and even popcorn!

This is the Daily Prompt:

Today’s SocialMoms blogging prompt was created by our team member Sasha Afanasieff.

What is one item you couldn’t live without for more than a week and why?

(For example, car, TV, cell phone, makeup, elliptical machine, internet, Facebook, etc.)

One item that I could not live without for more than a week would be the internet!  The internet is where I feel connected, and where I can exercise my creativity.  I love being able to meet new acquaintances through Social Media, and to transform those acquaintances to friendships (even friendships with strong bonds).  There are certain people who I look forward to chatting with ever day on Twitter….and there are certain people who I hope will comment on My Bits and Bleeps posts.  Why?  Because I value their opinion, and I value their input, and I can learn from what they say.

All this makes me a stronger person….a more informed person….a person that can change, and learn from her mistakes!

If I didn’t have access to the internet, I think I would miss their presence.  Similar to what I feel when I don’t see them on Twitter, or on my Blog!!  It just wouldn’t be the same.   I mean, I could LIVE without the internet!  ….But, I would feel at a loss until I could get onto the internet again!

If you could have dinner with one fictional character, who would it be and why?

This is the Daily Prompt: 

If you could have dinner with one fictional character, who would it be and why?

This isn’t the type of question that I would expect to face; however, I don’t have a problem in answering it at all!

One fictional character comes to mind immediately!

   That’s right!  Tigger!!!!  I love Tigger, and always have!  Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to hang out with Tigger!!  As an adult, I’ve owned two cats that I named Tigger (I owned each cat at different times), and when I want to feel cozy and comfy…I put on my big Tigger sweatshirt!  I own several Tigger articles of clothing….and I DID own a pair of Tigger studs, and my Tigger watch! ….. but in Feb. 2010 we were broken into and those jerks took everything!!!

It would be so cool to dine with Tigger!  Yes, I know I’m 42 years old!!!  Don’t we all have a little kid inside of us?  Well, my little kid inside of me would be so happy to share a pizza with Tigger!  I know that I’d be smiling ear to ear, and I’d want to take a lot of pictures too!  I’m not ashamed to say it!  Nor will I be embarrassed to share this info. with the rest of the world!  Tigger rocks!!


cuz he’s the only one!
